Luxembourg commits to Hague/Geneva treaty
Earlier today, the MARQUES Class 46 weblog reported that Luxembourg, the world's sole remaining Grand Duchy, had ratified the Singapore Treaty on Trademarks.  In what must have been a frantic surge of diplomatic activity, on the very same day as it opted for Singapore the Grand Duchy placed its international design registration policy on a firm basis by acceding to the Geneva Act of the Hague Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Industrial Designs. As the relevant WIPO media release puts it:

The Hague Notification No. 118

Hague Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Industrial Designs

Geneva Act of the Hague Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Industrial Designs

Accession by the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg

The Director General of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) presents his compliments to the Minister for Foreign Affairs and has the honor to notify the deposit by the Government of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, on September 3, 2013, of its instrument of accession to the Geneva Act of the Hague Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Industrial Designs, adopted at Geneva on July 2, 1999 (the "Geneva Act").

The instrument was accompanied by a declaration under Article 19, according to which:

"The Benelux Office for Intellectual Property is designated as a common office to the three Benelux countries and the territories of the three countries to which the Benelux Convention on Intellectual Property applies (trademarks and designs) is considered as one single Contracting Party for the application of Articles 1, 3 to 18 and 31 of the Geneva Act". 

The Geneva Act will enter into force, with respect to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, at a later date in accordance with Articles 27 and 28 of the Treaty.
